gas piston unit

The Government has simplified the procedure for placing gas piston units at critical infrastructure facilities


According to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal on his Telegram channel, these are installations necessary to ensure uninterrupted power supply to schools, hospitals and critical infrastructure facilities. Now, they can be installed without going through a number of licensing procedures.

This will create a reserve of power in case of an emergency power outage and at the same time decentralize generation.

Amendments have been made to CMU Resolution No. 1010 of 13.12.2017 “On Approval of Criteria for Determining Planned Activities Not Subject to Environmental Impact Assessment and Criteria for Determining Expansions and Changes in Activities and Facilities Not Subject to Environmental Impact Assessment” and Resolution No. 1320 of 07.12.2023 “Some Issues of Placing Gas Piston Cogeneration Units for the Period of Martial Law”.

This is about simplifying the conditions for the construction and/or placement of gas piston and gas turbine plants, including cogeneration, block-modular boilers, diesel/gasoline and gas generators (with a power of 1 MW or more), as well as related networks, metering units, etc.
